San Jose, Calif. - EBay and U.K. general merchandise retailer Argos have entered an agreement to extend their offering of Click & Collect services via Argos stores. This extension will enable shoppers to select products from a much wider range of EBay sellers for collection from about 650 Argos stores.
Buyers choose “Click and Collect at Argos” as the delivery option in their Bay checkout and select their most convenient Argos store. Buyers receive a message when their item is ready for collection in their selected Argos store and proceed to a dedicated collection point in the store. Eligible sellers will be enrolled in the service and need to prepare orders for despatch as normal with EBay’s technology taking care of the rest.
The Click & Collect partnership commenced in September 2013 with 50 Bay sellers offering a selected range of products for collection in 150 Argos stores. It is anticipated that by the end of 2014 around 65,000 eBay sellers will offer items for collection at Argos, rising to around 80,000 in 2015. Argos will make the Click & Collect service available in about 650 of its stores.
